God will use whatever He wants!

Sorry for abandoning my family updates for the moment! I wanted to share something, more for my sake than yours.

It always amazes me how creative our God is. How He is not limited to speaking to us through "writing in the sky" or a bolt of lightning. Last night I was cleaning my gross kitchen. Believe me, it was very yucky! David was coming home that night after being gone for the weekend so I wanted it to at least be bearable! The girls were running around playing horses, hide and seek, and tag at the same time. I had an awful headache. I was feeling rather grumpy, tired, fat, the usual! Suddenly a song came on. It's kind of a random song that I'm not really sure why I even like it! Kelly Clarkson's " A Moment Like This".

It just hit me like a 2x4! This, right here, at that very moment, was my dream come true! Growing up all of my friends had such lofty dreams of being nurses, teachers, singers etc. All I ever wanted was to be a wife and a mommy. I fell in love with David when I was thirteen years old. So more specifically, all I've wanted for the last ten years was to be married to David! Here I was, standing in MY kitchen, cleaning MY home, listening to MY amazing, beautiful, precious daughters play joyfully with each other, feeling MY new little baby kicking inside of me, waiting for MY amazing husband to come home. I just broke down and wept! Even now as I write I can't stop the tears as I think about God's overwhelming goodness to me.

I really wanted to write this out as a tangible reminder for me in days to come and hopefully to encourage you to really look at your life. God is so good and His creative blessings surround us all the time!

Thank you for the reminder. I think of that at times myself. I am doing what I've always wanted to do (besides being a mom). I love being at home and being married and serving my husband, but sometimes we do need reminded.

I with you -- living the dream that I sometimes let feel like a nightmare. Amazing how perspective can change EVERYTHING.

I'm so thankful that your "dream come true" happened at such a young age! I sincerely think the Lord chose to bless you because of your willingness to wait patiently for His timing, as you desired to live your life for Him. Thank you for being such a wonderful example to your precious younger sisters. I love you, Grace! --Mom
